about

Also from the "Bawdy Language" album.

Written just before moving to Nashville, then re-written in Nashville. (BTW, although I could point to real-world
'influences' on the song, it's fictional.)

lyrics

GIVING IN

Maybe we shouldn't or maybe we should
I'm tired of what's right - let's do what's good
(I) don't want to listen to the voice in my head
(I) don't want to leave, I want to hold you instead

Giving in . . .
Giving in to temptation
Giving in . . .
Giving in to temptation is easy
And it's too hard, it's too hard to be strong

Caught up in passion - we can't get away
But don't try too hard 'cause I want you to stay
Don't listen to reason it'll tear us apart
Let's make believe that this comes from the heart

Giving in . . .
Giving in to temptation
Giving in . . .
Giving in to temptation is easy
And it's too hard, it's too hard to be strong

Somebody needs you, he's cryin' at home
But I need you better don't leave me alone
Stay where you are - I know it's a sin
I'm taking what's taken, and you're givin' in

Giving in . . .
Giving in to temptation
Giving in . . .
Giving in to temptation completely
And it feels so right, it feels so right to do wrong
